Colour?  Bleeding colour?

Luxury!!

When I were a lad back in '56, a Yank dating me Auntie brought a comic book over.  First colour kids book I ever saw other than the annuals we used to get of the Beano, Dandy, Lion, Eagle. All our weekly
shite was B/W.

The Yank gave me a 10c coin (a dime) tiny thing the size of a f'arthing, was all it cost.  Amazing.

Still got the annuals.  Funniest bit was the cowboy baddie riding away from the goodie yelling over his shoulder "You SHAN'T catch me!"

Must have been a dead posh cowie then.  Either that or the author was goin' to night school to learn English - and got carried away altogether.

Gun smoke, Mr Dillon and Chester. Sea quest (Lloyd Bridges) and Ivanhoe (Roger Moore) we’re the only things that we get me away from playing on a bombsite.

Ivanhoe, I forgot about him. Nice one.

No-one mentioned William Tell, with that fat @rse baddy always eating a turkey leg, grease dripping down his double chin. A cross between Jabba the Hut & Joe Chippy T!ts Anderson. Did anyone else try spliiting an apple on their brothers head with a home-made cross bow?

Well I did! See above. ;D Lansburger Gessler was the Joe Anderson of his day.

^ nice one, When I was 18 my youth team got to play at Anfield and we got changed in the home dressing room, but I don't think we got to see the boot room, it was probably locked anyway, a good thing because we were robbing bastards and Rushie would have been looking for his Nike's on the Saturday  ;D

Had a little walk around town today, all the auld arse places where you get the best craic an that. Few large whites and a few good laughs. Thing was, I met an arl fella I recognised from Crocky on Slater St and felt dead sorry for him as he was talking about all his auld haunts disappearing.

He only gets out once a week now, jumping a bus into town instead of just a few pints every night in his old locals. Anyway I came home and her and the kids were out so I sat down and wrote a poem about him. I'm not averse to a verse but I'm no poet either but it kind of touched me heart that.

Bloody excellent matey.  You could be describing the decline of so many of the old community neighbourhoods of Manchester - all gone when they pulled down our very close-knit so-called "slum" neighbourhoods and buggered us all off to very far flung and different country places surrounding the outskirts of the city itself. Hattersley, Glossop, Heywood and Wythenshawe where we were shipped to and because the bastards shipped us all to very different estates like the rest of our neighbours in Ardwick, wherever they all ended up, none of us knew any bugger at all!!

I`ve just read Billy Connolly`s autobiography Johnno, and it was the same story in Glasgow: tenements pulled down and entire neighbourhoods decanted to far flung new build estates on the edge of the city. Billy says there was no community because of the high rises and the fact that there were no amenities to begin with; no pubs, no cinemas or even social centres. And, surprise surprise the parts of town (Partick in his case) that were pulled down (and not replaced with flats like the Gorbals) are now sought after and have high-priced housing near the city centre. Working class pushed to the edge of town, middle class get relatively cheap (in those days) housing.

I read it at Christmas time just gone Killie mate. The Big Yin is a hero in our family so daughter number 1 bought it for me. I've followed the ever rising career of Billy since a fella in my local in Macclesfield back at the end of the 60's/early 70's brought some cassette tapes into the pub and we were all falling about laughing - once we'd translated into English like. . .  :P :P :P  Never forget that me!! Saw his 1st TV appearance on Parky with the legendary "burying the missis with her arse cheeks protruding above ground 'cos I had to have somewhere to park my bike" joke! A convert ever since and a very poignant coincidence it is that of all illnesses to afflict him, it had to be PARKINSON'S!! What's that about??

Right.

I'm off.

Been quiet for a while, not much worth commenting about that wouldn't cause more mither than it was worth.

Whether it's the politics, Covid or the state of the world, this place isn't the pub it used to be.  It's become angry men shouting in the park, not congenial piss taking from fellow Reds.

Too many scumbags, warriors and WUMs on here now.

It was great fun, but it was just one of those things.  ;D

I had a cataract op in May last year. Massive difference it made as the sight in one eye was only about colours and little definition. Waited a couple of months to get tested for new specs and was told that it was returning.  Now waiting for laser treatment. 🤬

No idea mate, I’m on the list is all I know. I got new specs after the op but noticed a bit of a blur still, they retested and told me the news. I’m still wearing my old specs until it’s sorted.

I had both my eyes done about 5 years back. As you say the difference is immense. You just don't realise how bad your eyesight is progressively deteriorating.

Like you though, about 18 months later I started feeling that my vision was blurring again and not as vivid as it was in the months immediately following the ops. I took myself off to my friendly optician and as he explained it to me, sometimes they simply don't get all the cataract out during the op. Occasionally there's small fragments left behind, hence the need for the laser treatment. I was lucky in that I was seen within three months and I doubt that the process itself - totally painless - took more than 30 seconds each eye. Never had any trouble since - apart from never being able to find my reading glasses of course.

Take care of yourself jambutty - you're right too about how this thread was a great craic once upon a time. I randomly drop in now and again just to see how many of the auld un's are still around. Almost always disappointed when I do. Miss the good craic of 15/20 years back.

Take care of yourself jambutty - you're right too about how this thread was a great craic once upon a time. I randomly drop in now and again just to see how many of the auld un's are still around. Almost always disappointed when I do. Miss the good craic of 15/20 years back.
 

Nice to see you’re still in town Jonno. A great pity we don’t have the banter we used to but it’s always a bonus to see a familiar name post in here. Would be nice to see more of the odd post from people just to know they’re still hanging in there. Take care all.

Was about to say that I've seen him pop up on a few different threads.

Jesus, nothing on here since April.
They used to say you got your education on the Kop, I got a lot of mine from the Shankly boy thread.
The seeming demise of it and the passing/drifting off of many of its main contributors is a real stark reminder to me of how distant the old community on this site, and my love of football itself feels to me now.

It's a near death experience.

We're still here in the ether.  Hoovering ..... erm... hovering over Anfield.
